nose spiting face...OR...why I am not always right...OR...maybe I should listen to my husband




I have this unfortunate habit of thinking that, when it comes to disagreements with Ryan, I am usually right. The funny thing is I know that Ryan is smarter than I am. Hands down. No question. I am the first to admit it, and it doesn't bother me one bit. I am smart; he is smarter. But when it comes to individual situations and questions, all that goes out the window. I am almost always certain that I am right and he is wrong.

Today we had one of those little differences of opinion. We were in the bathroom getting ready, and Ella was holding a bottle of OPI's The Chapel of Love. It nearly rolled onto the tile floor, and Ryan commented how lucky we were that it didn't fall, as it would surely break. I disagreed. It wouldn't break. The glass was thick--the bottle sturdy.

To prove my point, I took the bottle and dropped it. Onto the hard tile floor.

And, yep, it broke.

Score one more for Ryan.

Great story. Dentist husband is smarter than me and I prefer it that way. I once dated someone where I was obviously smarter (I used to correct his spelling mistakes in letters her wrote me) and I hated it.

Oh my, I LOVE this!! I would totally do something like that! And, by the way I still believe that OPI bottles are tough as nails and that just this once was a fluke. I've dropped my fair share!
Ps: saw you at the wedding and didn't get a chance to say hi before you disappeared. I did however get to spend fourth of july with the cutest 2 year old ever! She is adorable!! Ma Suey and Pa Paul must be proud!

Don't worry, I've broken a bottle of OPI nail polish before, too :)

i'm pretty sure i'm always right, though. if i would have dropped it, it would not have broken.
